"Best" in what sense? Closest geographically is Queretaro although there are more flights to BJX which is only slightly further away. Cheapest flights may well be to Mexico City followed by a 4 hour bus/cab journey.

We have been using QRO because of the best schedules from DCA. Added benefit is the easy clearance thru customs and immigration, no lines. 30 minutes from touch down to driving off in a rental car. Non-stops are available into MEX at lower rates, but then there is a long drive. We rent cars because they are cheap ($20/day) and gives us flexibility. There have been recent threads on other transport options.

if you do fly to Queretaro, don't be in such a rush to leave town. Charming colonial town. Well worth a look around.

we have do it all- fly from states (usually from Houston) into Leon and then shuttle to SMA- fly into Mexico City and then first class bus to SMA, fly into Merida and visit there and then first class bus to SMA - this time we are flying into Queretaro which we hear is a nice airport - and then shuttle to SMA -

all the trips have been easy, comfortable - and we really loved the bus!
